  • What do you think of “How can we make education better for kids who have trouble in school?” as an essay topic?

    You have an excellent question. It might be good to narrow down the idea of “trouble in school” to be more specific. Do you want to talk about bullying? Or are you interested in academic trouble? Another interesting topic is how to help students who are gifted but underachieving. A final idea is a question that asks about how to make education better for students who don’t want to go to college and want a career preparation and internship track.

  • I’m having difficulty choosing my essay topic and constructing a title for it. I am an Elementary Education major. Can you please give suggest some research or topics? I’m from the Philippines and I badly need your help.

    I’m so glad that many people in the Phillippines read my articles and are helped by them. I have many articles which include links to research which can help you, so you might want to look at some of those articles on how to research. Look at my profile to see the other articles. I always suggest that you use a shortened version of the question for a title if you can’t think of anything else. If what you want is an easy education topic, you might try one of the following:

  • What is the best introduction to a problem solution essay?

    A story that makes the problem seem essential and dramatic is the best way to start a problem solution essay. There are a lot of issues in the world, and if you want your reader to think yours is an important one to solve, you need to catch their attention with something they will remember. A good story is an excellent way to do that. It can be a personal story, a news item, a typical made-up scenario, a real-life story or even part of a movie plot that demonstrates the problem. Follow that up with some statistics showing the importance of the problem for a wider audience, and you will have a great start!

  • What do you think of the topic, “how can steroid use be limited in all sports (or one in particular)?” as a problem solution essay?

    Picking one sport would make this an easier essay to argue. Remember that problem solution essays need to have a detailed explanation of the solution and also include answers to objections. Here are some sample topics:

    1. How can steroid use be eliminated from the Olympic games?

    2. How can steroid use be eliminated in high schools?

    3. How can steroids be limited in baseball?

  • What do you think of the topic, “how can I solve problems in my area?” as a problem solution essay?

    Solving problems in your own local area is a great way to focus for this sort of essay. However, you need to focus on just one particular problem to solve. No solution can solve all the problems. Here are some examples:

    1. How can we solve the problem of kids not getting enough to eat during the summer in our town?

    2. How can we solve the problem of student’s cheating in my school?

    3. How can we solve the problem of traffic congestion on our streets?

  • What do you think of the question, “How can college students study effectively and earn better grades?”

    You have an excellent question, and looking at the research on this would be helpful for your work in college. In fact, I always enjoy it when students do a topic like this because it lets the rest of the class think about what makes an effective schedule for studying. Often, I suggest that students interview people they know who make good grades or seem to have good study habits.

  • I have gotten admission to an engineering college, but after six months I don’t want to continue in engineering. What do I do?

    A very good paper can be written to answer a problem that an individual faces when they realize that they have chosen a school or major that they don’t like, or aren’t doing well in. I have sometimes advised students to use their papers to research this situation for themselves. To make a decision about what you can do, you can investigate the different opportunities for a person who finishes this degree to find out if one of those appeals to you. Next, you can think about how quickly you can finish the degree. If you can finish in a short amount of time, that is often best. You can sometimes use a degree that is finished to do a different kind of job, but if you don’t finish the degree, you may have to spend a long time to finish a different degree. Sometimes, you can switch to a different type of degree in the same college. Here are some good topic questions for this situation:

    What should a person do if they are unhappy with the college or major they have chosen?

    What are the different jobs that can be done with an engineering major?

    What should a person do who realizes they don’t want to finish their degree?

    I should say that not all of these are problem solution topics.

  • What is the best topic for me to choose for my essay?

    Any topic that you are interested in can be a good topic. For a problem solution paper, your best topic will be a problem that you really would like to solve. I tell students to think about what really bothers them. If you have a solution idea, that is even better. Before you make your final choice, you might want to Google the problem and see if you can find some good examples or possible solution ideas.

  • What do you think of the topic, “How can college students balance their studies and social lives?” for a problem solution essay?

    1. How important is it for college students to get work experience along with their education?

  • What do you think about the essay topic “What should be done about the problem of texting while driving?”

    Excellent question which makes it clear what the focus will be. You can make a good opening by sharing some statistics about accidents and how texting is similar to driving while under the influence. You can discuss solutions that are laws and also talk about how each person needs to choose to follow those solutions. It is easy to turn on an app or the setting which won’t let you text while driving. I think it makes a good ending of this sort of essay to encourage the reader to use that solution for their own phone use.

  • How would you recommend writing an essay topic for the question “How can I do a better job as a parent than my parents did for me?”

    Problem solution essays are such a useful form of thinking and expressing yourself because by learning this process you can not only try to solve issues in a community or the world but also your own personal problems and interests. Before you write on this topic, you would have to make sure your instructor lets you write about personal issues. However, even if they do not, you can actually work out this essay by turning it into a universal question: How can parents do a good job in parenting when they have had a difficult growing up? The key to answering these kinds of questions is researching the best ideas for good parenting and comparing that with the parenting techniques that are familiar to you.

  • Do you like “How can we help homeless people?” as a problem/solution essay topic?

    You have a very good question and many of my students do research papers on different organizations that try to help the homeless in different ways. You might want to rephrase the question to focus it a bit more:

    What is the best solution to homelessness?

    How can an individual best help solve the problem of homelessness?

    Which method of solving the problem of homelessness is the most effective?

    How can we eliminate homelessness?

    Some of the possible solution ideas are:

    Focus on substance abuse treatment.

    Build more housing.

    Give people vouchers for places to stay.

    Expand work programs.

    Give job training.

    Provide affordable housing.

    Give people assistance and training in handling finances.

    Organize a program to help people get the social services available.

    Provide better help and job training for Veterans.

    Provide long-term spiritual and emotional counseling.

    Create a mentorship program to help each individual homeless person.

  • How do I organize main ideas and supporting details on an idea web?

    An idea web is just a different way to visualize your paper outline. To turn a web into an outline, you will need to put the middle of the web into a question, and that is your thesis question. The spokes outside of that question are usually your answers to that question (thesis answers). If you are making a roadmap thesis, you will combine these into one sentence which answers the thesis question. Your body paragraphs will each start with the answer in one of the thesis answers. The ideas coming off of each thesis answer should provide the detail and reasons for believing that point. For more information, see my two articles about “How to Write a Great Thesis Sentence” and “Writing Good Topic Sentences.”

  • How should I write the introduction to the topic “What is the best way to help someone who is depressed?” How should I write the thesis statement?

    The best kind of introduction for this sort of topic is two-fold. First of all, start with a real or made-up story or scenario of a person who is depressed and how their friend or family member feels in that situation. Then tell the statistics about how many people experience depression. Your thesis works best if it is written in a question and answer format. The thesis question would be what you have written above, “What is the best way to help someone who is depressed?;” that is a good ending sentence for your first paragraph. The starting sentence for the next paragraph can be your thesis answer. Some people like to have it in the first paragraph after the question. The thesis answer should be: The three best ways to help someone who is depressed are…

  • I’m having difficulty with my essays because I never know how to start an essay and I don’t know how I should start the introduction. Clearly, the introduction is the heart of the whole essay. So, I am facing that problem. How should I think through the introduction?

Then you write your thesis, which is your idea about the solution. Here is my article which describes how to write this sort of essay, including different ideas about the introduction: https://owlcation.com/academia/How-to-Write-a-Prop…

  • How should I write a catchy introduction for either a formal or informal letter?

    Formal letters should generally not have a catchy introduction because you want to sound professional. In general, you want to address a formal letter with “Dear Mrs. Romero” or “Dear Committee” rather than “To whom it may concern.” If you can’t find the name of the person you are writing the letter to, then you should say the name of the department or company. In an informal letter, you can use the first name and “Hi” or another informal greeting.

    The opening sentence of a formal letter can either be a compliment, the reason for your letter, or the main point of the letter. Generally, humor works best in informal writing and getting to the main point is better in a formal letter. The most important thing is to be clear and make sure that you don’t confuse the person reading the letter.

  • How can I start my first paragraph in my research essay which is talking about the need for more awareness of the nursing shortage?

    A great way to start any problem essay is to give a story about someone experiencing the problem. It can be a personal experience or a typical situation. In the case of the nursing shortage, you can either use the experience of a typical nurse who has too many patients to care for and is feeling stressed or doesn’t have the time to do a good job, or it can be a patient who has to wait too long, or has the nurse miss some important health information because they don’t have the time to spend with them. Perhaps the patient is thirsty or has to go to the bathroom and has too wait too long for help and soils themselves. After you tell a dramatic story illustrating the problem, it is also most effective if you give some statistics showing the extent of the problem. Use your statistics or statements from an authority to convince the reader that your story is not just an isolated incident, but is actually a common situation that needs correcting.

    Siranush, start your paper with a story about someone who is depressed and then give statistics about depression. The thesis statement should be something like: While no one can take responsibility for solving someone else’s depression, there are some things that friends and family can do to help a person who is depressed.

    Bernard, I suggest that you talk with your fellow students about problems that they have as they both work and go to school. In your paper, you would list each problem and then suggest a few solutions. For example, you might talk about finding time to do homework and then give solutions like making a schedule, studying during lunch, or finding a partner to help you keep accountable.

    Elvira, if your topic is about a person with potenital, you are probably not doing a problem solution essay. You are writing a reflection essay and I have an article which gives all of the instructions you will need, including information about how to do the introduction.

    Kanika–It is a good idea to turn your topic into a question and an answer. Here are some examples:

    What is the effect of divorce on young children (or teenagers or college students)? Your answer would be your thesis. Another topic idea could be:

    What is the effect of divorce on men (or women)?

    What is the effect of divorce on a person’s work? See my article on how to write a cause effect paper.

    I have many articles on different subjects for you to look at. Many of the ones in this article would work fine but you can also look at my articles which are specifically for high school students. A good paper idea is one that interests you and it will be easier to write if you immediately can think of your opinion on that topic and some examples you can use from your own life, something you’ve read, current news or an example from literature, a movie or another video.

    Hi Trang–I have a lot of information to help you write your paper. Look for my articles about how to write argument, problem solution and proposal papers. In order to discuss two solutions, you just need to think about two possible answers to the question that have not yet been done. For example, in the question "How can students get enough good sleep each night?" two good answers that are equal would be: making a schedule for work and sleep, and using a technology device like a cell phone or fitbit that tracks sleep patterns.

    Hi there VirginiaLynne, I don’t know how to start but you nailed it and you seem to possess command over topics. You do justify what you have said in your profile.

    Anyway, I enjoyed reading your hub – it is helpful to those who are seeking to teach essay at the college or university level, and those who want to writer such a genre of essay. That is problem-solution essay.

    I would ask though about the tips to writing an essay quickly and accurately at the same time. How should you as an essay writer achieve both ends?

I seriously couldn’t have thought of any of these topics, and this definitely helped my essay. There was many topics to choose from, depending on the area you are interested in. It made me think about what I really wanted to write about! Thanks so much!!! 🙂

    You really thought of so many valid topic that are all worthy of discussion. Anyone of this topic could easily be written about and really there are so many problems, it is a bit overwhelming, but then we must start somewhere. This is a great idea for a hub and no one should have to have writer’s block anymore. Voted up and useful.
